Spanish Nanny from Costa Rica

Nannies on Call welcomed Jessica to our team of extraordinary nannies in November and she certainly puts the ‘extra’ into ‘ordinary’! Originally from San Jose, Costa Rica, Jessica immigrated to Canada with her family in 1988. Bilingual in English and Spanish, Jessica has followed her passion for working with children since 2000 and has over 10 years experience working with newborns to school aged children. She is a nanny who will go that extra mile; she loves nothing more than getting involved with children – teaching them Spanish, taking them on outings and doing arts and crafts with them. Past families say their children “adored her” and “She has the ‘it’ factor!”
